How To Pole Fish
Pole fishing has become extremely popular over the years especially with match anglers, with huge weights being caught using this method. It is also a excellent starter method particulary with younger anglers, no reel makes fishing far easier for a beginner. Pole fishing basically is a method by which a long pole, most of which are made from carbon is used to ship your float rig out into your swim. There is no casting as such involved, the float rig can be held in position which enables the angler to present the bait far more accurately than normal float fishing. The pole is loaded with elastic which does most the work when playing fish, this means much lighter lines and tackle can be used.
